Report Confirms That 2016 Was the Hottest Year on Record

A new report called “State of the Climate in 2016,” conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), reconfirmed that 2016 was the hottest year on record. Both global land surfaces and sea surfaces were the highest in the 137 years that these figures have been tracked.

The report also stated, “The global average sea level rose to a new record high in 2016, and was about 3.25 inches higher than that observed in 1993, when satellite record-keeping for sea level began.”

More than 450 scientists from over 50 countries participated in the research, and for the third straight year the report concluded that Earth has been hotter than any year on record.

This is all very bad news.

The rising temperatures correlate to rising sea levels, having the biggest impact on nations in the southern hemisphere, particularly South America and parts of Africa. Regions from both continents have been suffering from some of the worst draughts in their history. Also, according to NOAA scientist Dr. Howard Diamond, who spoke with BuzzFeed News, the tiny islands around parts of South America and Africa are also subject to severe flooding because they are low-lying and susceptible to storm surge.

This past June, our national embarrassment of president, Donald Trump, pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, a global effort to combat climate change. The move not only offended many world leaders, but Trump has yet to even acknowledge that humans are the biggest reason for the rise of global temperatures or that climate change even exists.

In 2012, because Trump is an actual idiot, he tweeted, “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

Right.
